How to set a goal in 7 days

Set Your Goals Monday

Think big. Visualise your future in three areas – finance, family and health. How much do you want to earn this year, next year, in five years? What lifestyle do you want for you and your family? What does perfect health look like?

Tuesday

Think quickly. What are your three most important goals in life right now? You only have 30 seconds to give your answers. How are they different from yesterday? They are probably a more accurate picture of what you truly want from life.

Wednesday

Write it down. Your goals should be clear, specific, detailed and measurable. Make each goal positive, not negative. Rather than writing, “I won’t miss any more gym sessions”, instead write, “I’ll exercise three times a week.”

Thursday

Set a deadline. If your goal is for better fitness, register yourself for a race. If it’s for weight loss, plan an event for which you want to look glamorous. If your goal is big, setting sub-deadlines will help you to minimise procrastination.

Friday

Troubleshoot. Identify the obstacles that have prevented you from achieving your goals in the past, then work out how you can overcome each obstacle one by one. What skills and knowledge will you need to acquire to get there?

Saturday

Make a plan. Organise your goals into a series of steps. Aim to achieve one thing each day towards your goal – it could be as simple as taking a healthy snack to work, trying a new machine at the gym or getting to bed an hour earlier.

Sunday

Write an affirmation. Describe your goal in the present as if you’ve achieved it. Keep it positive, for example, “Today, I’m fit and healthy.” Say the affirmation five times every morning to keep the goal in your mind for the day ahead.

Monday

Think big. Visualise your future in three areas – finance, family and health. How much do you want to earn this year, next year, in five years? What lifestyle do you want for you and your family? What does perfect health look like?
